Television Documentary 13 Episodes (30 Minutes)
Architecture is the constant fight between man and nature, the fight to overwhelm nature, to possess it. The first act of architecture is to put a stone on the ground. That act transforms a condition of nature into a condition of culture; it’s a holy act.

That is how ‘Thailand Grand Space’ tells the story through architecture and passion of the people around it. There is no limitation if we want to design.
